Crackdown on accessible parking violators comes to Peru

Posted by wlpo on November 30, 2010

Sometimes a good parking spot is hard to find, but that doesn’t mean you can park in an accessible parking space.

43 tickets have been written since Friday for people accused of illegally parking in accessible spaces.  The crackdown on illegal parkers is a project of the Secretary of State Police.  Officers were looking for lawbreakers at malls across the state including Peru.

You could be fined up to $500 if you’re caught using a placard or disability license plates if the person issued the permit isn’t with you. You could also face a 30-day driver’s license suspension.  Parking in an accessible space without a placard could cost you up to $350.

The Secretary of State’s office says they’ll continue to look for violators.
